So You Think You Can Dance: Hello Again, Wade and Shane

Here's one reason--no, two reasons why this season of So You Think You Can Dance will sizzle a bit more. One: Wade Robson. Two: Shane Sparks. They are, indeed, returning to the show to choreograph routines for the top 20. This was confirmed by the contestants themselves, when they met up with the folks at Zap2it. And, perhaps, it's about time. Then again, their departure from the show wasn't really a falling out of sorts. Both were just busy: Wade was doing choreography for Criss Angel's show in Las Vegas, and Shane was judging America's Best Dance Crew on MTV. With the former wrapped up, and the latter not returning until August, they can return both to do those rocking routines, and give their take on how that was implemented, too. Also set to return as judge and choreographer: Brian Friedman, who confirmed it himself on his Twitter page. "Yes, I will be back on SYTYCD this season," he wrote. "Get ready!" He was also busy with a few things, including a handful of commitments across the pond, including the time when he almost became a judge at The X Factor--before being relegated to creative director. Finally, another peek at what these guys have to offer, again--that's when So You Think You Can Dance finally kicks off the real nitty-gritty tonight on Fox, from 8pm. Source Here

Top 20 Interviews

It's almost time for the Top 20 to start dancing and for America to start voting on So You Think You Can Dance . To get America acquainted with the 20 dancer's vying for the title of America's Favorite Dancer, Fox Source sat down with the Top 20 for a little interview. During the interview the dancers discuss: their very first dance performances, their experience during Las Vegas week, their strategies to win So You Think You Can Dance, what dance style and choreography they are most worried about, and what they think of the styles they're donning for their promo photos. FOX, it would seem, are multi-taskers, as they interview the dancers two at a time, all while fellow dancers are taking their promo photos and leaping about in the background. And don't get your hopes up too high about the pairings during the interview, we've been told the interview partners are not necessarily also each others dance partners. Considering how great the chemistry is between a few of the pairs, most notably: Janette and Brandon, Karla and Max, and Jeanine and Evan, we can't help but hope FOX is faking us out and these duos really will dance together. However, for Jason Glover's sake, we hope he's not paired with his interview buddy, Paris Torres--he can barely contain his distaste for the pageant queen while she's speaking. (Check out his body language while Paris prattles on...it's priceless.) To Read More Click here .

Ratings: Game 1 of NBA Finals Shoots and Scores for ABC

Thursday's ratings recap: * 8 pm/ET ABC's coverage of Game 1 of the NBA Finals - which was kicked off by a Jimmy Kimmel special - topped every hour and was the night's most watched program, averaging 9.4 million viewers from 8 to 11 pm. In the 8 o'clock hour, I'm a Celebrity placed fourth (behind repeats of Bones and CBS comedies) with 5.18 mil. That is, however, an 8 percent gain from the night prior.

The premiere of NBC's The Listener placed fourth with 5.25 mil. * 10 pm A second episode of The Listener drew 5.34 mil, lagging far behind basketball and a The Mentalist repeat. Source Here

So You Think You Can Dance: Who's Scarier, Mia Michaels or Sonya Tayeh?

The Las Vegas callbacks for So You Think You Can Dance were a bloodbath. In just two hours, the six judges whittled a field of 172 dancers down to just 32, crushing the hopes and dreams of 140 aspiring dancers. But scarier than the prospect of learning six styles in four days were some of the choreographers. Tabitha and Napoleon seem nice enough as does the bubbly and fabulous Tyce Diorio, but there are two female choreographers who I would never want to run into in a dark alley: Sonya Tayeh and Mia Michaels? Which of these tough women is truly the scariest and most bad-ass choreographer on the planet? Let's look at the way they look, the dance styles they specialize in, and their overall attitude to determine who wins the title of So You Think You Can Dance's Scariest Choreographer.

Ratings: ABC's Wipeout Dunks Fox's Dance - Featured

How Wednesday's fresh fare fared: * 8 pm/ET CBS' George Strait concert special was the night's most watched program, averaging 10.6 million total viewers over its two-hour run. The Season 2 premiere of ABC's Wipeout , however, topped the 8 o'clock demos - So You Think You Can Dance included.

Tv's Hot List: Thursday, May 28, 2009 - Featured

*National Spelling Bee 8 pm/ET ABC Times have changed, and so have the winning words in this entertaining event. Hard-to-spell, but at least understandable, championship-deciding words from the past have included "gladiolus" (1925); "condominium" (1956); "chihuahua" (1967) and "luge" (1984). But starting about 15 years ago, the competition heated up, with winners having to clinch with words like "antediluvian," "succedaneum" and "appoggiatura." It's gotten tougher being a kid. - Dave Roeder * So You Think You Can Dance 8 pm/ET Fox No one doubts the pressure put on these dancers in the later rounds, but don't discount the strain they feel when they're just trying to make it out of the audition stage, as they are in these tryouts in Los Angeles and Seattle. And while there are some who have every right to be confident about their status, the rest will have to give it everything they've got to make it to next week's callbacks in Las Vegas. - Joe Friedrich *I'm Fat Again: A Best Life Special 8 pm/ET Discovery Health A few days ago we celebrated Memorial Day weekend, which marks the unofficial start of summer - and the kickoff to bathing-suit season! Fear not, yo-yo dieters: Oprah Winfrey's personal trainer Bob Greene takes over the tube to show you how to win the battle of the bulge. - Michael Chant * The Real Housewives of New York City ': The Lost Footage 9 pm/ET Bravo The cable net cores through more plump and juicy Big Apple dramas featuring housewives Alex, Bethenny, Jill, LuAnn, Ramona and Kelly. Apparently the stormy two-part reunion edition two weeks ago wasn't enough because here they are again - our well-tended ladies from New York City returning in socialite highlights, extended scenes and previously unseen footage from the sudsy series' second season. - Dean Maurer *The Oprah Effect 9 pm/ET CNBC Here's one secret to success: appear on Oprah Winfrey's popular talk show. Whether it's a multitude of books, Garrett's popcorn or the "slimming intimates" known as Spanx, a simple turn beside - or a mere mention from the daytime queen can boost the bottom line like nobody else. But how does one get on the show to start with? CNBC's Carl Quintanilla finds out. - Jeff Gemmill

Ratings Highlights for Idol, Criminal Minds, Dance and More - Featured

Recapping some Nielsen numbers from recent days, including some very big finales and the premiere of the summer's hottest reality competition: Wednesday * The American Idol finale played to a crowd of 27.7 million total viewers, hitting a high of 32.55 mil as Kris got crowned.

Tonight's TV Hot List: Thursday, May 21, 2009 - Featured

* So You Think You Can Dance (8 pm/ET Fox) ABC's Dancing with the Stars may have ended Tuesday, but that doesn't mean the connection for your terpsichorean fix has dried up. That's because it's time for the fifth season of So You Think You Can Dance, and tonight's premiere, as well as two-hour shows next Wednesday and Thursday (8 pm/ET), will showcase auditions in Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Denver, Seattle and Memphis. * Man-Made (8 pm/ET National Geographic Channel) For good reason, car safety is a top priority for many car buyers, so auto manufacturers are constantly working to make their vehicles safer. This hour goes inside high-tech crash labs to see how they do that. Highlights include a look at ultra-advanced - and surprisingly lifelike - crash-test dummies, and an interview with an extremely brave (or insane) man who, with 852 crashes under his belt, holds the world record for "most human-subject crash tests." * Ugly Betty (8 pm/ET ABC) No disrespect to Molly, who collapsed in the bathroom last week right before her honeymoon, but when the guest stars for tonight's two-hour, third-season finale include Billie Jean King, Rachel Maddow and Christopher Gorham (Henry's back in town!), um, let's just hope Daniel's new bride is OK. In other news, Wilhelmina hits up Matt's scheming mother for information about Claire's connection to Cal, and Marc and Betty hope their YETI profiles pay off when an editing job opens up at Mode. * Southern Belles: Louisville (10 pm/ET SOAPnet) This new reality series is a sort of prequel to Real Housewives, as it focuses on a group of five single women (although one is twice-divorced). These Kentucky gals are at crossroads in their lives when it comes to careers and romances. Julie is a model worried about her career and her clicking biological clock, Shea is planning her wedding to a man who has yet to propose to her, and divorce Kellie is starting a matchmaking business. Get to know them and their pals as they're introduced in tonight's premiere. * Southland (10 pm/ET NBC) The first season of the cop drama wraps up, and the good news is that the show will be back for a second. After weeks of run-ins with the city's thugs, L.A.'s finest discover a dead gang member in the trunk of a car tonight. And Lydia (Regina King) finds the line between her professional and personal life further blurred when Bryant (Shawn Hatosy) convinces her to take in Janilla (Carla Jeffrey). Source Here
